McDonald’s Workers Lawsuit; The Possibility of Female Deacons in the Catholic Church; Proposal to Shrink Minor League Baseball

Chicago-area McDonald’s workers have filed a lawsuit against the company. They’re alleging the fast-food giant failed to protect them from violent incidents in restaurants. Plus this fall, Pope Francis said he would reopen the work of a 2016 commission that studied the issue of women Decaons in the Catholic church.
